Spring Fever

I know it is spring, but spring doesn't hit Alaska until late April/early May. This year has been different though, and let me tell will hear no complaints from me. The break up of the snow is already in progress. It's been very warm, so warm that there is no snow on our roof or driveway (we finished breaking up the ice on our driveway today). Today was beautiful. We decided to go hiking at the ER nature center and then a bike ride after our hike. I can't believe it, we took down our bikes and actually went on a bike ride. Seriously, so exciting! Looking forward to this summer in Alaska, crossing fingers (and toes) that it stays relatively warm all summer. The hike and bike ride were delightful, spectacular, a breath of fresh air, and refreshing.

It was a great day.
